16.06 Xfce Wallpaper contest
« on: 07. March 2016, 17:35:43 »


For a very long time the look of Manjaro Xfce edition has not changed and the Menda themes have become like a hallmark for this distribution.
Now as some of you will have seen already, the development team has started playing around a bit with the design of the next release, which will be in June.
At the moment we are trying to find, if somehow possible, a more or less unified look for the different environments and the maia-themes seem to be a good starting point for that. Especially since recently we now also have the perfectly matching gtk-themes vertex-maia and vertex-maia-square to accompany the icons.
I think that the unique design of the default Xfce-wallpapers by Ugo Yak with their different colors are still really cool but apart from that we are not really shipping a lot of nice alternatives.
Well, we would like to change that now! 8)
My idea was this:
Lets collect everybody's suggestions and creations for Xfce-backgrounds and then have the community elect 10 favorites to be included in the 16.06 edition.
It would of course be great to find a new default wallpaper, too, that plays nicely with maia, but of course there can also be some completely different ones for a nice included choice.
Of course the pictures will have to be licence free (GPL3)

Thanks MadmanRB! :)
Is it intentional that the left 'leg' of the logo in the first wall is a tiny littly longer than the rest?  :-\

I am removing the one with the circle logo, after much debate I think its not as good as the other two I made.
If I remake it in the future I will add it in another topic

I made two more, these are just darker wallpapers that I am throwing in for fun rather than anything else.
Use them, dont use them hey its fine for me.
The first two are my contest entries, these two are just something that are optional.
Put them in, dont put them in... I dont care, again this is just for fun.
I will open another topic if I make more in the future.

Well there is still time :) we have some already and I will just collect for a while and then open a poll in a separate thread I thought, so it doesn't get crowded... We can also include other sources of course like for example some highlights from excalibur's collection ;). @excalibur, do you maybe have 2 or 3 favorites? :P I've cloned the whole lot now, too, but this looks like some serious homework... ... :o ;)

my favorite is "manjaro-arch-2.jpg". i have created it myself and used it as background  for over a year.

but this looks like some serious homework... ... :o ;)
i agree. almost 500 wallpapers are A LOT. i usually just skip through them really fast and pick a couple i like best.
